<muppis>
Odd.. Thin client requests i386/lts.conf even client is amd64.
15:08
<alkisg>
That's because you have a misconfigured dhcp server
15:09
That doesn't send a boot filename on the initramfs dhcp request
15:09
(or, the IPAPPEND 3 stage)
15:11
<muppis>
Probably due ipappend as is has worked till now.

<darkpixel_1>
Anyone have recommendations for dealing with slow links? I have a client that is considering using LTSP (I have 5 others using it already), but the major difference with this client is that they have two 'remote' sites. They only have ~1 Mbit links to their main network. Everything works well except for the LTSP boot process--it takes about 15 minutes work the workstation to boot and fire up rdesktop. Each remote site has a linux router with a
19:47
(Google isn't very forthcoming with LTSP and slow links or the kernel boot args I can pass to point at different nbd servers/images)
19:47
<vagrantc>
put LTSP servers at each site, and sync the homedirs?
19:48
or use something like freenx/vnc/rdesktop instead of LTSP
19:48toscalix has left IRC (toscalix!~toscalix@212-166-162-74.red-acceso.airtel.net, Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
19:49
<darkpixel_1>
They do have Windows 2003 servers at each site that are ancient and slow, but I'm not entirely sure if I can replace them with LTSP yet. They still think they need one or two 'real' Windows workstations at each site. (They don't want to pay the outrageous Office license fees when it's installed on a terminal server)
19:49
I'll take a look at freenx--thanks vagrantc.
19:51
<chrisjrob>
darkpixel_1: that's the same situation we have, and we just have an LTSP server at each site, we don't sync the home dirs, as most staff have a designated site
19:52
for those that do float, we tend to use an LTSP screen script for NX to log into their normal site
19:53
<darkpixel_1>
chrisjrob: I'm lucky enough this client doesn't really need to store docs locally, they just need to be able to run a few apps through rdesktop--everything else is web based.
19:54
<chrisjrob>
then a very basic LTSP server at each site to provide an rdesktop session would sound ideal?
19:57
<darkpixel_1>
chrisjrob: Yep--now I just need to get them completely off Windows desktops. As long as they have one local PC running Windows, they need a local server--otherwise things like software deployment, permissions lookups, etc... all has to come across that slow link.
19:58
<andygraybeal>
darkpixel_i don'tknow your situation, but i virtualized my windows machine; so they could access it from any one of the linux terminal clients (one at a time, obviously, but still helpful)
19:58
<darkpixel_1>
chrisjrob: Since each remote site has a linux router (literally an underpowered 1U PC running Ubuntu with firewalling, DHCP, and a few other basic services) I'm betting I can swap out the slooow CF cards with small SSDs and just install LTSP to it as a jumping off point to fire up rdesktop.
19:58
<andygraybeal>
darkpixel_and like vagrantc said, freenx, vnc, rdesktop.. to add to that i have chosen 'x2go'

andygraybeal: The remote servers are about 7 years old--they don't support virtualization and barely have enough horsepower to run Windows 2003.
20:00
<andygraybeal>
okay, good deal.
